Default Goat riding a Dragon

CMA is having their East coast Fast Lane rally this weekend at Iron Horse motorcycle lodge on US 28 right down from the Dragon. When we left this morning it was cold and overcast but not too bad.

Started by going over Cherohala Skyway where we ran into flurries at the top. Then there was lots of rain on the other side which stay with us the entire time on the Dragon and back to the lodge. Even added a little sleet into the mix.

All in all still fun but would've been better without the rain. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow and the ride home Sunday but the weatherman isn't on my side.

Good stuff Bubba, ride safe.

Did they fix that road damage from the rock slide on Cherohala already? Someone posted a pic with some pretty significant damage a little while back. I thought they were saying it could be months before the road was reopened.

There is a short area where only one lane is open. They have a temporary red light set up to control traffic.

MUCH better day today. Did two runs starting jist before 4 pm. Here are a few action shots. The Harley rider with us was surprised at the Victory's performance. He said a Harley tourer would've not been able to keep up like the XR did. Of course he also said he would deny ever saying that!!!

He was riding a Gold Wing, second was a Harley XR1200. The Wing rider is the best of the Group and left us in the dust. We were able to catch up when he got behind someone who didn't/couldn't move over right away.

Just got back home. Almot 1500 miles since Thursday. AWESOME weekend
